A sailboat sails west from port for 5.3 km and experiences a shift in the wind direction. The wind blows the sailboat 2.5 km south. What is its displacement from its original position?

a^2+b^2=c^2
5.3^2+2.5^2=5.86^2

I just cant figure out the direction...

    It must be southwest of its original position.
